I was into transporting business, not kidnapping, Evans tells court


Chukwudimeme Onwuamadike, alias Evans, said on Friday that he was innocent of the charges leveled against him before the Lagos State Special Offences Court sitting in Ikeja, adding that what he does is a transportation business.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Evans denied kidnapping a businessman, Sylvanus Ahamonu, and collecting $420,000 ransom from his family. 

Evans, who is being tried alongside an ex-soldier, Victor Aduba, stated this during the continuation of his trial on Friday. 

He, however, noted that while he was incarcerated, he had filed a fundamental human rights suit against the police at the Federal High Court, Lagos, over the alleged torture. 

When asked why he was seen in a jovial mood in the confessional video played in court, Evans said he was forced to act in that manner by the police. 

He said: "You do not know what I encountered in the hands of Abba Kyari and his boys; my eyes saw hell".
